Russian President Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to the participants.

The CNG station has the design capacity of 29.8 million cubic meters of gas per year. It is equipped with 12 gas pumps and a dispenser for mobile NGV refueling stations. Thanks to the advanced, reliable equipment manufactured primarily in Russia, the new facility can service some 2,000 vehicles per day.

The station is located on Levoberezhnaya Street in Moscow's Northern Administrative District next to the operating floor of the Zelenograd Motor Combine (formerly 11th Bus Park) owned by Mosgortrans and servicing 155 natural gas-powered buses.

“Russia has the largest reserves of natural gas in the world. In view of that potential, a few years ago we embarked on an ambitious effort to develop the refueling infrastructure that uses affordable and eco-friendly vehicle fuel. In the past three years, Gazprom's investments into the gas filling network have exceeded RUB 10 billion. We have built 43 state-of-the-art stations in 24 Russian regions.

Moscow is a gigantic megalopolis, a major transport and logistics center. By the start of the FIFA World Cup, we will bring four more stations onstream in the city. They will comply with the highest quality and safety standards. Over the next two years, Gazprom will establish a full-fledged NGV refueling network in the region.

The crucial aspect is that the NGV market fosters the development of related industries, which, in its turn, generates jobs and improves the social and economic situation not only in the regions, but also in the country at large. The role of natural gas in vehicles is bound to grow further,” said Viktor Zubkov.

Background

The production and sales of natural gas as a vehicle fuel is one of Gazprom's strategic priorities. Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo is a special-purpose company established for ensuring the continuous development of the NGV market.

Gazprom and the Moscow Government signed the Agreement to promote the use of natural gas as a vehicle fuel. The document is aimed at developing and implementing investment projects for the construction of NGV infrastructure, as well as increasing the number of gas-powered public vehicles in Moscow.

There are currently two active CNG filling stations (including the station on Levoberezhnaya Street) owned by Gazprom in Moscow and the Moscow Region, as well as eight CNG stations operated by Mosavtogaz.
